Last week’s workouts:
Monday: 48 Minutes (supposed to be part-tempo but we didn’t feel up to it), 10 minutes abs, yoga
Tuesday: 46 Minutes easy, weights, yoga
Wednesday: 10 minute warm up, 8x short hill, 15 minute cool-down, yoga
Thursday: 40 minutes easy: 3.56 miles, weights, yoga
Friday: Rest. I planned to run after school but the weight room was locked up and I didn’t feel so good after finals. See below. Yay listening to my body! Also, yoga.
Saturday: I joined a gym because it was too cold to run outside, and it was 10 bucks for a month (Thanks, Groupon!). 70 minutes on a treadmill alone. Embarrassingly slow pace: 6 miles. Watched 16 Candles. \
Sunday: Rest & Yoga
Total Mileage: ~20 miles (My garmin decided not to find satellites a few of the days)
Reflection: Yoga = amazing. But as far as runs, I’ve felt so slow! For the past week it seems like I’ve had the sniffles on and off, but on Friday after finals, it seemed pretty bad. I took a day off of running on Friday. On Saturday, I woke up and I felt kind of sick. Like, blowing my nose a lot and a bit of sinus pressure sick. I decided not to run outside this weekend because I felt sick and it was only 1 degree out there on Saturday.
I took a 24 hour allergy medication Saturday afternoon, and it seemed to help for like 5 hours. I’m sneezing a lot, so that’s what makes me think it’s allergies. The allergy medication doesn’t seem to help much though.
I NEED whatever this is to clear up by Tuesday!! Tomorrow I have my 2nd day of finals and it’s the first day of track practice! I’m so excited for the season, I just hope my body cooperates!
**I hope it doesn’t seem like all I do on my blog is complain. Lately I feel like all my posts are very attention-thirsty, like “oh feel bad for me”, but I don’t want it to be that way at all!
This week’s workouts:
Monday: On my own, 35 minutes on a treadmill (easy, took a 5 minute walking break not counted in time), 10 minutes abs and yoga.
Tuesday-Saturday: Unknown. The coaches haven’t given us a schedule because as of tomorrow, track season has OFFICIALLY started!
Sunday: Rest & my last day of Yoga!! I’m so sad this challenge will be OVER!
What’s your workout plan? How do you deal with being sick and running?
